... a weekly letter of encouragement.
26 March, 1997 - Singapore
PICTURE THE SCENE:+
Three years of camaraderie, miracles, and the infusion of His life into theirs, now culminating in a final meal together...before the tragic onslaught of denial and death.
In a few hours,
Judas would knife Him in the back.
Peter would crumble under pressure.
The rest would run away in fear.
Fully aware of these events, Jesus,
Knelt before Judas and lovingly washed his feet.
As He did Peter's
And the rest.
It's called unconditional love.
Of this love the Lord Jesus said, "I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you...As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13:15,34b)
QUESTION: TO WHAT EXTENT OF LOVING SERVANTHOOD ARE YOU WILLING TO GO FOR THE SAKE OF THOSE WHOM GOD HAS PLACED IN YOUR PATH?
Washing traitors' feet and dying on an instrument of execution for a pack of rebels was His level of sacrifice.
What is yours?
My prayer is that you are having a great week!
